Bonfire Night and Fireworks

Ackworth Cricket Club 2017

Friday 3rd November 2017, at 5pm

Hi everyone the time of year is approaching where we are planning the bonfire at Ackworth Cricket Club.

This year there will be more rides for older children along with more rides for younger children, there will be food sold by the Cricket Club been pie and peas as well as a burger van. The bar will be open from 5pm, This year there will be an entry charge for adults of £1 per person.

This year we have radio Yorkshire attending the event, and we will also be supporting Yorkshire Air Ambulance who will have a stall on the night arriving at 5:30pm.

Bonfire will be lit at 6:15pm
Fireworks approximately 7:30pm

Can all locals please ensure you leave your lovely cars at home as we were aware people locally were trying to park near the cricket field which caused chaos near the field itself, by parking it at home the Cricket Club will appreciate this 😊😊
